Default IR Repeater for DTV

I moved my DTV receiver inside a cabinet. I'm looking for an IR repeater to help out.

Anybody have experience with this? And can recommend a solution.

You do not require a IR repeater, for most DirecTv boxes you can order the RF remote from them. I have one for our kitchen unit and it works perfectly for the unit hidden in a cupboard.

Thanks Jim.

I use a Harmony 700 remote for that area. I believe it is only IR.

I could order an RF from DTV, but it would only be used sparingly (when the Harmony is charging).

Try Powermid, for about $40 on Amazon, it is a very simple solution. If you don't like the look of Powermid, you can put together a small Xantech system with one of their kits.
